A Walk to Remember

My Books Add comments

I finished reading the book A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I told you before that the first novel written by Nicholas that I have read is Safe Haven. I liked the way he wrote his novels. Simple yet heartfelt. Anyway, my sister Pauline asked me to read A Walk to Remember, too. She said that it;s going to make me really cry. Well, I have seen the movie, but she said that reading the book is totally different. Alright I agreed, but we didn’t have the book. She has a pdf copy but I don’t enjoy reading a novel from a computer. This is a cliche; when I read I want to relax. :)

Anyhow, I decided to get a copy of it but I want the book with the original cover. Though I’ve seen the movie that starred Mandy Moore, I still wanted the book that I am going to buy has the original cover. Some may say that it doesn’t matter as long as they have the same contents. But for me, it matters. I went to different bookstores and I failed to find one that has original cover with it. :( I am at the point of giving up when I decided to check ebay. Finally, I found a copy! :)

It’s not a brand new book. It was pre-owned but the pages are still intact and no folds. I sent an email to the seller and we setup up a meeting at SM Megamall. I was really excited when I got book. I was so excited showing it to my sisters. They love me so much when I buy a book. Hehehe! :)

If I am not mistaken, it took me about 2 days to finish reading the book. I enjoyed it and I loved it. The difference? Well, in the movie I thought the “walk to remember” was the scene where Jamie and Landon had a date. In the book, the walk to remember was actually when Jamie walked down with her father to marry Landon. :)

The book not only talks about love but faith as well. :)

My favorite part of the book is how Landon shared that year with Jamie. He said;

“I relive that year often in my mind, bringing it back to life, and I realize that when I do, I always feel a strange combination of sadness and joy. There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well. So I take the memories as they come, accepting them all, letting them guide me whenever I can.”

Ciao! :)
